Tomato

Tomato is now grown worldwide for its edible fruits, with thousands of cultivars having been selected with varying fruit types, and for optimum growth in differing growing conditions.

Tomatoes are now eaten freely throughout the world, and their consumption is believed to benefit the heart among other things. Lycopene, one of nature's most powerful antioxidants, is present in Tomatoes, and, especially when Tomatoes are cooked, has been found beneficial in preventing prostate cancer. Tomato extract branded as Lycomato is now also being promoted for treatment of high blood pressure.

Tomato has an acidic property that is used to bring out other flavors. This same acidity makes Tomatoes especially easy to preserve in home canning as Tomato sauce or paste. Tomato juice is often canned and sold as a beverage. Unripe green Tomatoes can also be used to make salsa, be breaded and fried, or pickled.
